Like many corporations, the governing body of our organization is a Board of Directors.

Board Membership:

Officers

The officers of the corporation are the president, president-elect, past president, recording secretary, financial secretary, and treasurer. A nominating committee, appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Board, recommends a slate of officers to the membership for election at the Annual Meeting.
